Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum

Built in 1824, the original lighthouse tower was almost destroyed during the Civil War, fell into disrepair, rebuilt in 1870, and now is open to the public as a maritime museum and library.

Reviewed By Vickie D - Denver, Indiana

While at the lighthouse, we received a tour in the museum by a very knowledgeable gentleman. Learning about the lighthouse and the Sodus Point area was very interesting. The lighthouse has a very nice little museum of collectibles, maps and other maritime artifacts. We were even able to walk up the lighthouse tower (not an easy task) and see the beautiful view.

Chimney Bluffs State Park

Reviewed By Radiohutch - Safety Harbor, Florida

Lynn and I and friends did a hike recently in Chimney Bluffs State Park to see the hoodoo-like formations along the eastern point of the Park. This was a 3 mile hike for us which began along the eastern dirt cliffs of the park and continued high above Lake Ontario. The trail is very narrow. The cliffs are eroding to a point where it almost seems dangerous to walk along some of it. There were small rocks, a few downed trees and lots of roots. After seeing the formations that are quickly eroding we were able to catch a wider, flatter grass trail back to the parking area. There are only a few trails and they are marked where the trail merges. I think that some mile markers might be in order. The views of Lake Ontario are great, but I don't think that I would do this hike again.

Beechwood State Park

Reviewed By SunnysPal - Williamson, NY

Beechwood State Park is an interesting location. There are three entrances. One at the bridge over Maxwell Creek, one to the East, and one to the West. At the bridge entrance you can walk South up Maxwell Creek toward a small waterfall. There are generally folks fly-fishing along the banks. The two trails to the West of the bridge head toward an old Girl Scout camp that is on the shore of Lake Ontario and the West shore of Maxwell Creek. There is a trail to the East that travels the East side of Maxwell Creek. The old abandoned camp is a little spooky. But there are great trails for walking and running. In the winter the trails are ideal for cross country skiing. You can't beat the views of the lake at the end.

It was a sunny, chilly Sunday afternoon in October and
The sights and sounds of a thriving farm greeted us as we met Carol and Barbara, our guides for the afternoon.

After a lovely walk in the woods with stories about the animals, the farm and the volunteers that make it all happen, we toured the barns and met the animals. I love the chickens. Sarah liked the goats. What a great opportunity to get up close and personal with horses, donkeys, ducks, pigs, and nature.
Thank you Carol and Barbara for a great afternoon down on the farm!
Plan your adventure to Alasa Farm, you’ll be pleasantly surprised

Thorpe Vineyard

Reviewed By Gators89 - Gainesville, Florida

We had seen several signs advertising Thorpe Vineyard. We decided to visit it since we were visiting Chimney Bluffs State Park, close by.

This is a very small winery! The lady inside was not very friendly or outgoing, but she was knowledgeable about the wines and which ones had won awards. My husband and daughter paid for tastings and enjoyed them. They purchased one bottle of wine and were satisfied with their selection.

Upon first impressions, it's small and looks out of place in a small rural residential area. However, the small selection of wines were decent and the prices are average for vineyards on the wine trail.

The Coop Deck

Reviewed By Kathryn S - Rockville MD

We had dinner here while traveling in the area in June 2014. It's a wonderful, casual, on-the-water restaurant with a good menu. While seafood is, of course, a main attraction, we were there on $1 taco night -- can't beat the price! And sitting on their deck in the gorgeous evening weather was as relaxing as could be. Enjoy!

Mary and Bruce King sure gave us a wonderful tour of Sodus Bay and a nice trip up the shore line of Lake Ontario. We packed a lite lunch and just relaxed as the ''World went bye''. We can't wait to return to take another trip on the ''Mary Adaline''!
